Ed: After yesterday’s NEC meeting the following statement was sent out by the Party Chairman Kirstan Herriot to UKIP members:
Today, the UKIP NEC voted overwhelmingly against a motion of no confidence in the leader Gerard Batten.
The NEC also decided the following:
“The party does not endorse the appointment of Tommy Robinson in any advisory role. He is not a UKIP member and through his associations he is barred from joining UKIP.”
“The planned march on 9th December was not organised by UKIP but members are free to attend should they wish.”
